Two Taman Back In The Hometown

So I got itchy feet and needing to run a bit when we went back to my hometown for Raya.

I had packed a set (just ONE set) of running clothes but not really sure I'd be "rajin" enough to do any runs while I was in Raub but hubby was nice enough to accompany me not only for the short stop/run at two parks in my hometown, he accompanied me for a walk on the evening of the first day of Raya too. Up and down Bukit Ceria which is adjacent to the Taman where my parents' house is.
My sisters said it was far and I actually scoffed at them. It was just a 30min walk anyway. (Son whispered to me however not to judge his aunts badly as I walk 42K for fun. Love that boy. LOL)
First park : a very small park in front of Hospital Besar Raub. A loop here barely reach 400m. But hilly so can do 100m hill repeats here. LOL
 Running on the path between the lotus ponds.
Approaching the park's fitness area.

A slightly bigger park would be Taman Tasik Raub which is a few hundred meters away.
I ran around it and can confirm a full loop is about 800m. Perfect to do Yasso 800s. Miahaha
I started my run late at 9.00am and a staff there hollered at me that the sprinkler will be turned on soon. 
Gazing into the lake. Tired la. Hehehe

Hubby opined the next time we return to my hometown, I can just run from my Dad's house straight to the lake. Yeahhhhh... see lah if I rajin or not the next time we're back to my hometown. LOL

Raya In Kampung

No food photos.

No family photos either.

The highlight of Raya was going back to my hometown and in time for rambutan, mangosteen and durian! LOL
Durian fell off tree.
Durian eaten happily. Hahaha
Picking up low fruiting mangosteen.
Using a pole to get to the higher mangosteen.

Mangosteen that fell to the ground can't be kept long and have to be eaten quickly otherwise, they won't be nice. "kerang" as we in kampung would say. :P (No, I dunno how to explain what it means. Muahaha)
There were rambutans too!

Happiness. ^^

Because Everybody Deserves A Best Buddy In Their Life

A walk for inclusion.

A walk for acceptance.

A walk for friendship.

Are we embarrassed of disabled people, even (or especially) when they're our family? Do we discriminate them, instead of offering them our friendship? Our love? Our acceptance?

That's what is mentioned in the video above.

That's why I am open to participate in Best Buddies Friendship Walk because, quoting Helen Keller; "Walking with a friend in the dark is better than walking alone in the light."

What's it's all about?

Best Buddies Friendship Walk 2014 aims to changes lives, as participants walk for inclusion, friendship, leadership, and opportunity for people with and without Intellectual and Developmental Disabilities (IDD).
In the Best Buddies Friendship Walk Malaysia, the goal is to generate awareness and also to showcase our program to other schools, universities and corporations so that they too would adopt this program and help spread the vision of a Malaysia that actively practices INCLUSION.

Walk for inclusion. Walk for friendship. Walk for a better community.

Best Buddies is a nonprofit 501(c)(3) organization dedicated to establishing a global volunteer movement that creates opportunities for one-to-one friendships, integrated employment and leadership development for people with intellectual and developmental disabilities (IDD).

How can we be a part of this?

Registration can be done via this online registration form (link here)

Here's an activity flow of the flow come Sep 6th, which I got from their Facebook page :
Anyways, more info on Best Buddies can be gleaned from this website too (link here) and also Best Buddies Malaysia.

The least we can do, of course join the Best Buddies Friendship Walk 2014 which will be held on September 6th, 2014 from 4.00pm - 8.30pm at Taman Tasik Permaisuri.

I'll be there. Will you join me?
